Exclusive Track Premiere: Haunted Shores featuring Devin Townsend, “Feed the Wolf”
Last October we premiered “Norway Jose” by Haunted Shores, the black/death/progressive metal project helmed by Periphery axeman Mark Holcomb (which predates his involvement with Periphery) and Misha Mansoor. The track ripped, a complete departure from Periphery, as did the EP from which it came, Viscera.
We didn’t think it would be possible to make the track even better, but that’s exactly what’s now been done: Holcomb wrangled Canadian poopy nuggeteer Devin Townsend into lending his vocals to the track, rechristening it “Feed the Wolf” and making it available as a Viscera bonus track on iTunes starting tomorrow, April 5th. Huzzah!
Townsend’s vocals take this track to the next level. His masterful songwriting, production expertise and generally affable/quirky personality are so often the focus of Heavy Devy worship, but he is an insanely talented vocalist who brings gravitas and dynamic to any track on which he sings. He sounds absolutely phenomenal here, and he takes this track from good to great.
Stream it below, and keep an eye out on iTunes tomorrow to own it.
